Im not sure that 95% wouldnt want the signatures. It was a pretty important feature when the book was discussed pre-kickstarter. The book signing and audiobook were the two most popular additional features.
That should still work, but you might find that the tree struggled in a bad winter. However by planting it in a sheltered location and perhaps taking steps to protect it from extreme cold the tree would probably be fine.

At the same time, Bryan has a point. My cost to support this endeavour is already approaching $50. And my personal want is simply to have a hard-copy of my own.
So if there were an option to top up my total out-of-pocket expense to $50, which would maybe cost me $10 more, I would almost certainly be amenable.
But there's no way I can justify topping up to $100 plus shipping.
And it's not because I don't value permaculture; I am already giving what I can.
But I hope there are elements of the demographic for whom this strategy will work. This endeavour certainly deserves it.
